ETB has developed a technology to produce bio-butadiene (bio-BD) using bio-ethanol as a feedstock. We bring the industry a way to shift the production of the most important building block in rubber and plastic industry from fossil-based feedstock to bio-based. Thus, opening a way to bio-based Styrene-Butadiene (SBR) and Butadiene (BR) rubbers for tires, Acrylonitrile-Butadiene-Styrene (ABS) plastic for corps and helmets and dozens of other materials used in our everyday products. Our technology also allows the industry to significantly lower carbon footprint while producing bio-BD comparing with fossil-based BD.
